Storyline

Rejected by the townspeople because her father is a squatter, Tess Skinner nevertheless wins the love of the wealthy Frederick Graves, who secretly marries her. When Frederick's mother insists that he marry heiress Madelene Waldersticker, however, he lacks the courage to admit that he is already married and instead acquiesces to his mother's wishes. For her husband's sake, Tess conceals his crime of bigamy. When her baby is due, Tess is summoned before a council of churchmen and banished from the church because she refuses to name her betrayer. Left alone upon the death of her father, Tess is shielded by Mr. Young, a middle-aged admirer who offers her and her baby the protection of his home. Several years later, Frederick dies of a heart attack and Tess rewards her faithful friend by becoming his wife. Written by Pamela Short
